View Full Version here: : Flying over Egypt
10-08-2012, 04:06 PM
Earlier this year I flew to the Basque Country to visit my family. Watching the flight map monitors I noticed we were flying directly over the Nile and thought "I wonder if..." and low and behold there they were, the Great Pyramids basking in the morning Sun. The blinds went up all the way, people were sleeping, I didn't care I just started snapping away whilst being completely awe struck :eyepop:
Meanwhile I'm yet to set foot on Egypt :)

Thanks Pete, I couldn't believe my luck plus lucky I had my camera handy and not stowed away.
How lucky is that! Fabulous story.
If I ever sat next to you on a plane, please don't hesitate to wake me up to
show me something this iconic!
Wonderful shots Carlos.
The Pyramids look awesome.

Great shots, I like how they just poke through the haze, looking very cool.

Thanks Gary, you bet and being 6'5" and flying economy I don't get much sleep on aeroplanes so I spend most of the trip looking out the window. Flights attendants constantly nag me to drop the blinds, I argue I've paid for my seat but not too heatedly as I don't want to get hand-cuffed and escorted off the plane when we land :)
Thanks SkyViking, it was just that! Early morning fog.
Woohoo, fabulous Carlos, well done!! Have lovely holiday. :)
Had 6 weeks in Spain and Portugal late last year, wonderful holiday. :D
